I think this is the most fun I’ve ever seen people have playing classical music
This is perfected, ideal music. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like
The first attempt at super high resolution microsopy… did not work.
My favourite circular musical cosmology still has to be this one from Christopher Simpson’s 1659 “The Division Viol”, where he also makes some amusing remarks about the structure of the solar system.
Listening to @HistPhilosophy about the desert fathers, and can’t help but remember this gem from @TheToast http://the-toast.net/2016/02/23/the-desert-fathers/

Philosophers: [quietly doing philosophy]
Riddle me this, bible scholars: reading through Genesis 1, it seems like god singles out whales as being particularly significant. They’re the first animals to get created (1:21), other sea creatures get created afterwards, and then when mankind shows up we get dominion over, specifically: the “fish of the sea”, birds, and “creeping things that creepeth” (1:26).
But NOT whales. They are the only animals created by god which get to escape the dominion of mankind. Is that why one ate Jonah later on? Was this supposed to be a major plot point, but which became less relevant after most of the action moved onto the land?
Please tell me that this isn’t like the “whoever finds a treetop, he will get the master magic” line at the beginning of the Kalevala which nobody ever mentions again. I read the entire thing, patiently waiting for someone to find a treetop but it never happened. What is the master magic? Is it different from the complete knowledge of the universe Väinämöinen gained from Vipunen to finish his boat? CHECKOV’S GUN, PEOPLE
#TIL the direction of a pcbnew (KiCAD) selection changes its behaviour. LtoR only selects completely surrounded parts, RtoL selects partially selected parts.
I can’t find this feature documented anywhere, but the selection colours are different so I assume it’s supposed to be like this.
EDIT: apparently it’s something of a de-facto UI standard in CAD apps, probably started by AutoCAD.
